Meiguo hei ren yao zi you [American Negroes want freedom]

Beijing: Yinyue chubanshe, 1964. Four-page sheet music folio, 7.25x10.25 inches, very good with minor signs of handling. Title in red on a white background; cover emblem is an understated star-and-banner motif.

Militant song about "centuries of hatred" seething in the awakening hearts of an oppressed minority, and the eighteen levels of imperialist hell echoing with the sounds of the coming liberating forces. "The Negro's American oppressors are the common enemy of all races." Lyricist Guang Weiran (1913-2002) was a prominent poet, author of some of revolutionary China's most well-known songs including the Yellow River Cantata.
